Alien Awareness

Riding OnThinking is not a normal or innate function of a man. No one is born with the capacity to think. It is made available by way of the vehicle of language; the very first technology that sparked the possibility of every other man-made marvel. To think is impossible without language. Throw a clean-slate child into the wilderness and observe whether he is inherently interested in doing anything other than satisfying his base bestial hungers. The systematic categorisation of the labels of nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns and adverbs created the ingredients and structure required to unleash the alien awareness of self-recognition and a progressively adaptive understanding of the world. Words are the building blocks of a personalised ego that is based wholly on a conceptual interface to the life it finds itself in. Through words he thinks of himself, the past, the present, and the future, with all his thoughts coloured by the dynamic array of sensations and emotions that serve as its second fiddles. The thinking apparatus is handed down from elder to infant until the child acquires enough words and labels to fully function on its own. It comes in various models and editions, changing in direct accordance to the development of the particular language a respective culture is based upon.
